Our History

End of 2015 Makki Al-Kurdi, a Saudi national, launched the idea of creating a brand new website to promote tourism in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a broadly unknown country which has a huge potential to attract expatriates who leave there and people all around the world. To do so he proposed to Florent Egal, a French expatriate who had already explored most of Saudi Arabia, and to Andy Conder, a fine connoisseur of Riyadh's restaurant scene. They were both enthusiastic about this idea and immediately decided to launch the project that will soon become the Saudi Arabia Tourism Guide.

One year later Andy had covered some of his  favourite restaurants in Riyadh, as well as posts relating to the desert rallies and other recreational activites he was involved with, and Florent had completed more than 50 articles corresponding to as many sites in Saudi Arabia... and still has plenty more to uncover!

Beginning of 2017 the content of the website reached a satisfying level of information and was officially launched in order to reveal to the world the marvels Saudi Arabia has to offer.

About the Author

My name is Florent Egal, I am a French national living in Riyadh since January 2010. After six years of exploration of Saudi Arabia I have decided to show with this website that KSA has much more to offer than the stereotype landscape of empty extends of sand dunes. I hope that after reading through these pages people will feel the same willingness and amazement than I have to discover this fascinating country
